I do realize Mark magically appeared at #20 in the WBC rankings, and King must have played a part in that because his activity and results didn't warrant it. But it seems that is all King has done for him in years.

I'm sure I'm not the only one here interested in your response
Were any of the cards DKP cards? No. What has DKP done in the last 3 years, I'd happily argue not enough. I think that's evident. You've just got to be ready to go, for when it suits DKP. Now at WBC#19, so hopefully it leads to an opportunity.

Fair and reason answer, and I think we are all hoping King will finally deliver de Mori a competitive opponent. The fact Mark has miraculously appeared at WBC #19 while doing so little to justify it is a hint something might be brewing

He's just seen one go by. If King doesn't deliver after turning down Bryant Jennings it will stink to high heaven.

My thoughts exactly Spider....no matter how slight his chances against Jennings would have been.

Why would he ?
Possibly the most padded record in Australian boxing.
Imo he wouldn't beat Lucas Browne.
Wouldn't last 2 rounds with Bryant Jennings.

Poor statement, By-By Jennings record is far from padded.

Kubrat Pulev & Robert Helenius are the only other Heavyweights that come to mind of someone sub 18 pro fights with a better resume.
With probably David Price 4th.

Did he not recently resign with king ? As stated here on the forum. Why did he after nothing happening for so long?

no you could not, the guy has fought good opposition so far, including liakhovich who retired in the 9th round after taking a beating from him, do some research before you say things like this buster.

Always so confrontational Buster. We'll the lads beat me to it in regards to Jennings. But I can concede that its hard to know where Mark is ability wise, due to the level of opposition he's had. Mind you, the level of opposition he has had doesnt leave him in a good position to take on a HW contender all of a sudden either.
